In the past election, candidates have been criticized and judged because their crowds
have gotten out of control. So, for the show:
Each team will have an audience of 100 – 300 on stage supporters that they can train
on how to add positive, fun energy for their support.
Cheerleaders and a DJ can be added and they can coordinate their
routines with the house band.
Candidates or Newsmakers can also participate in leading cheers.
The “300” will be judged, just like the candidates and their score
is averaged in with each Candidate or News-maker.
They would be penalized when they show dis-respect to the other side
at an inappropriate moment and given points when they
show creativity and positive energy.
So, their score will affect their Debate Team’s score.
